ANOTHER TOLL STORY. If the government implements a proposal by a group called Smash Plus said to be backed by tycoon Syed Mokhtar al-Bukhary, Malaysian highway users will not only get an immediate 10 per cent reduction in what they are paying now but they will not ever, as long as the sun rises from the east, ever have to go through another increase in toll. Yep, NO MORE TOLL RISE!
I'm not sure what to make out of this news you can pick up here from the watchers of Asas Serba, the company linked to Halim Saad which proposed to end our toll woes not too long ago (the proposal is still being considered, according to parliament yesterday).
One thing for sure, both Asas Serba and Smash Plus say they only need RM40 bil or RM50 bil to resolve this issue.
Sweet. Who's going to pay for the RM40-50 billion, you think?
